Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Cookies

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies that are Vegan and Gluten Free - by Veggie Lexi
I love it when I realize I have a banana that’s about to go bad.  I really do. Maybe that makes me weird? I love it because it means that instead of my usual oatmeal for breakfast (which I love, but I have it almost every day, so something new is always fun), I get to eat cookies for breakfast.  Not only do I get to eat cookies for breakfast, they’re so healthy that instead of feeling guilty for starting my day off with a sugar rush, I get to pat myself on the back for starting my day with such a wholesome and healthy meal.  I call that a win.

      Hi, Susan! I ran the recipe through Cronometer, and the total calories for the recipe is 263 (or about 33 calories per cookie). These make smaller cookies, and I usually eat about 4 for breakfast.

      Hi Chrissy! I’m not super familiar with the 21 Day Fix, but I did some research online and this is what I was able to come up with. The entire recipe would be 2 purple container portions and 2 yellow container portions. Since I normally eat 4 of the cookies for breakfast (1/2 the recipe), the serving would be 1 purple container and 1 yellow container.
